Holy Shite. WOW.

I haven't felt that shocked since the last ep of Season 1. WOW.

Why do they even need a finale?

The no music in the credits was perfect. These guys know how to let the shock pang through.

Fvcking awesome acting by Catelyn Stark. She was nothing but annoying for 3 years. What a heartbreaking performance.

As I don't have HBO, I'm guessing this was the red wedding?
Yes, everyone killed.. no one left now.. hardly

I am not sure what the writers are thinking honestly. They just took out some pretty integral characters to their show.

TV writers? Isn't what happened tonight true to the book?

It's refreshing at least- in the midst of predictable plots of all TV shows.

Book people don't spoil! That being said, I'm really curious what happens from now on. The Stark family is over. The war is actually pretty much over. Bran is too young, Jon Snow is a bastard son, and Sansa is a helpless puppet.

Despite their willingness to change the story in minor ways the writers are sticking close to the books in regards to tonight's episode.

It was what George R.R. Martin intended, and he wrote the chapter dealing with the "Red Wedding" last when writing the book, (A Storm of Swords), that seasons 3 and 4 are based on.

I guess some fan-girls
who are into a certain actor will be upset that he won't be in any further episodes, but... the story overall is better for it so far... if you have read the books

Having read the books I knew full well what was going to happen, but man, that was hard to watch.

The episode was just perfect. After the disappointment I had with the Battle of Blackwater, the way they did this was just... Perfect.

Roose in the show has never been nearly sinister enough. He looks and acts nothing like the Roose of the books, who is an absolutely creepy freak.

I wont yet comment on things they added to the scene, but i was kinda bummed i didnt get to see the greatjohn go berserk.

Resist the urge to buy the bundle. Buy them individually. If you buy the bundle then you get one huge eBook that has everything in it.
